Calling the Formax FD 450 a letter opener is almost like calling a Airbus A380 a kite, both may fly but they’re not the same.
What Does it Do?
The Formax FD 450 Envelope Opener is a sleek machine designed to open up to 300 envelopes per minute. It doesn’t just rip them apart though, it gingerly slits one side of every envelope, eliminating any messy paper scraps and making a nice, clean cut.
There’s no need to pre-sort either, the Formax FD 450 can handle a variety of shapes and sizes, up to 3.5” x 11” in height and 5.5” x 15.6” in length. If an envelope is too thick, the FD 450 can run into problems, but any single-stamp, 3/16” envelope will be fine. It’s small size (just 20lbs) makes it table-top perfect for any business or small department.
For customers with massive mail loads, the FD 450 has optional two and four-bin joggers designed to settle contents and prepare envelopes for smooth and fast opening.
And How Much Does it Cost?
Customers can pick up the Formax FD450 Envelope Opener for $2050 on the Lloyd’s of Indiana website. The unit comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, but extended warranty options are also available.
